The DataTraveler Ultimate excels not because of its headline sequential speeds but because of its respectable and very balanced performance. Regardless of the workload you throw at it, the Kingston will perform well. Physically this drive is much larger than most and it's well constructed. From a value perspective the Kingston falls down a bit because it's one of the more expensive drives. [Jun '13 USBFlashPro]
